About a doctor who violated the innocent trust of unknowing naive woman.

It's horrible that it happened, but great that he was brought to justice. Great read for lovers of the true crime genre.

This is a older book I found in my Mother's closet. I really enjoyed it and found it hard to put down.

Frightening. Gripping. Amazing.
This is the true story of a doctor who was accused of raping many of his patients.
Most of the town believed him.
Very few people believed the victims, all 100+ of them.
I am sad for these women, who fought for justice. The victims lost jobs, husbands, faith, pride, and family. My heart goes out to them.

I couldn't put the book down.

This was an easy to read book. It held my interest to the end. It was well written and easy to understand. It opened my eyes to the vulnerability of the human being. The danger of innocense or ignorance whichever you would call it. I prefer to call in innocense. So many of us long to trust, especially those in authority and that is not always a good thing.
